Top Secret Mission

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create the fastest pinewood derby car and prevent any and all tears at this year's Pinewood Derby.

Seriously, we've been making Cub Scout pinewood derby cars with our boys for the past 11 years (with a year or two break between a couple of our boys), and we've never had a first place car. Our goal is to prevent crying. Last place = crying. This year, John took it a bit more seriously and is polishing the axles. We'll see if it makes a difference.

John always tells our boys, "I can't promise how well it will do, but it will look good." And it does, but I don't think AJ wants me to reveal it yet. So here are a few pics to tide you over.
